    So, basically

    As far as I understand it, delusions and illusions of religion come from within human reason/brain. As far as science goes so far that is merely a chemical process. So what is un-scientific about it? wouldnt it be interesting to find out which chemical process causes people to "believe" or...

    So, basically

    Hmm I seriously doubt that one has to put miracles in every discussion about religion, and trust me, religious people or even theologists dont sip their coffee while talking enthusiastically how local chicken had a golden egg the last day. It is extremely hard, or better, wholely impossible to...

    Infinite-infinite universe explains all

    your theory is much like parallel worlds theory...just one thing bothered me about that one, and I think It applies to this one, too... if there is infinity as you put it, how then we are in such a linear universe? the laws of physics etc... perhaps because with consciousness also come...

    Rape and Incest

    i'm sorry, but i can't help you further, i can't put it into words. this is a thing you will probably have to discover during your lifetime, and such things are discovered mostly by people themselves. it's not science but it has a logical basis. but it's even more objective than science...

    Why do we have realistic dreams?

    "What decides that imagery is going to be the primary form?" "Perhaps this shows that our conscious memory is primary visual" the latter is a long known fact in psychology and medicine....hehe you went deductive from dreams! koo.

    Why do we have realistic dreams?

    so perhaps, if you pray entire day, thinking and concentrating hard on tatsloto numbers, they will appear in your brain during sleep. just don't roll over in your bed, as research suggest that we forget our dreams when we do that. so, perhaps you already dreamt the right combination:-)))))

    Why do we have realistic dreams?

    perhaps...in my theory, the 10% or 40% of the brain we "use" just means how deep into our subconsciousness we have penetrated. 100% usage of brain would be optimal awareness and we would have no subconsciousness at all. we would be 100% consciouss. our brain is perhaps randomly and...

    Are we ever unconscious?

    "That is, an independent soul or consciousness is driving the driver of the car. Don't be supprised, because this is what the Cartesian version of Dualism suggests." what if it's just our sub-consciousness driving the car? and the nature of sub-consciousness driver could be as well automated...
